People love West End Cottages with its wide road, unrestricted parking and characterful terraces, and especially with no. 36 being an end terrace, but more so like a semi detached, it will prove to grab early attention, so make your move…and be quick!!
It’s been in the same family for 3 decades and being such a rare property, coming to market is a real treat. The layout is great with an entrance lobby opening into the lounge which has a real cosy feel and traditional multi fuel stove. From here a door leads to the inner vestibule with stairs to the spacious 1st floor accommodation. A door off the lobby opens to the dining room, with another multi fuel stove and two windows to the side aspect. The L-shaped kitchen is roomy with loads of cupboard storage space, fitted with light oak fronted units and blessed with an array of built in appliances. Being at the back of the property the kitchen window enjoys a pleasant aspect over the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a deep pantry which stems back from its days as a grocers shop! Completing the ground floor is the rear porch with useful separate wc and laundry cupboard with with space for the washing machine.
The first floor is graced with a huge galleried landing which means you have separate access to all THREE BEDROOMS and the LUXURIOUS shower room. The landing provides access via a retractable wooden ladder to the boarded out roof space which offers plenty of storage space.
The garden is a strong feature of the home, most of which is paved and offers distinct separate terraces, both great for seating and alfresco dining. Steps up lead to a further terrace which then features the large WORKSHOP. The driveway accessed from the road front is subject to an annually renewable licence and has been so for the last 30 years (circa £30 a year). The driveway suits space for a number of vehicles, with the owners having stored there the odd camper van or caravan too.
It’s a terrific position, being at the top of the road, where parking becomes less competitive and is also fantastically located for the ever popular Astbury Mere Country Park. A wonderful community spirited place for walkers, runner, good walkers with water based activities available at the shore side outdoor pursuits centre.
Practically close to the bustling town centre of Congleton. For the commuter, access to the nearby Northwest motorway network is easily available at Junction 17 or 18 of the M6 motorway. It is also within only a few minutes walking distance of the town’s railway station which offers links to national rail networks with frequent connections to London Euston and Manchester Piccadilly. Manchester International Airport is also easily accessible. Bus stops are immediate, offering all manner of local bus routes to both the town centre and surrounding towns.
